SMOKEY RIVER BOYS
Nashville . New York . Hollywood

The legendary Smokey River Boys, on MCA Universal for three generations have been elected to the “Legends Hall Of Fame” in Branson, Missouri this week as announced by Hall Of Fame curators in Branson. The legendary group celebrated their 40th anniversary on the label in the year 2003. The current album out by the Smokey River Boys on MCA Universal and sponsored by Wal-Mart Stores everywhere is entitled “O Brother.” It is the # 17 album in the Bluegrass Billboard charts this week and the # 1 Bluegrass album in the Euro-bluegrass charts in Europe this week worldwide.

The single from the album, “O Brother” has been steadily gaining airplay throughout the United States since its endorsement by George Clooney who starred in the O Brother Where Art Thou movie. Written by Sr. Vice-President of Universal Special Products Division, Bob Zipkin and his co-writers Kimberly Ann Cook & Robert Metzgar, the single record has been endorsed by Hairl Hensley at the home of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and Ken Berryhill who is a DJ at the Vanderbilt University Rock station in Nashville as one of the most played single records in all formats of radio in Nashville. The song is published by the Walt Disney Music Group in Hollywood.

No one seems to understand what has made the “O Brother” movement so popular, but to date over 13.5 million pieces of “O Brother” product has been sold by music retailers in the United States and the soundtrack has topped the Billboard charts at #1 for over two years in the Bluegrass section. In addition the song, “Man Of Constant Sorrow” which is out by the Smokey River Boys as one of the Top-20 bluegrass releases of all times, has become a bluegrass cult favorite with college kids in California who call themselves the “blueheads of bluegrass.” The Smokey River Boys version is out on a special Wal-Mart Bluegrass album entitled, “20 Greatest Hits of Bluegrass” in stores now!

The Smokey River Boys are played in every radio format in Nashville on gospel stations, country stations, adult contemporary stations and rock stations which has never before happened for any bluegrass group on the label according to the radio promotions director who promotes the Smokey River Boys on radio for MCA Universal nationally.

The boys are so famous now that they recently signed autographs at one of the special Navy Intel military bases where they signed from 10 a.m. in the morning till 3:30 a.m. the next morning, signing autographs for over 2000 military families and their children. The Smokey River Boys are proud sponsors of the Grand Ole Opry warm up show every Friday night from 7:00 p.m. till 7:30 p.m. “live” from the Grand Ole Opry on WSM 650 AM Radio with host Hairl Hensley. More information or Grand Ole Opry tickets can be found at www.opry.com or you can email Hairl Hensley at www.wsmonline.com

The current group which just appeared on the ABC Radio Network for a two hour “live” special with the Chaplain of Country Music at the Grand Ole Opry and the show’s host, Roger Fredinburg for “Legends & Legends In The Making” announced their election to the Legends Hall Of Fame by curators while on the air. Members of the current group include Robert Metzgar (lead singer from Texas) Stephen Hill (tenor) Woody Wright (baritone) and Doug Clements (bass singer). The band has 9 members including the brother of Alison Krauss, Viktor Krauss. You can get more information about the legendary band by going to any of the following web sites online or by calling toll free at 800-767-4984.

The original group of Lefty Jenkins, Luke Rogers, Sonny Wyatt and Bill Jackson had three multi-platinum albums which sold through Reader’s Digest and as a Time-Life-Warner Series called “Songs Of The Old West.” The second generation of Smokey River Boys are famous for their two platinum albums, “Dueling Banjos” and “Best Of Banjo” with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, Grandpa Jones, and the Osborne Brothers. The single, “O Brother” is an airplay phenomenon at radio with the “O Brother” album now out on MCA Universal in Canada and Europe as well this month.

Bluegrass Fantastic
This album is really the big monster that everyone says it is. I loved the movie. I could have just went off into the sunset with George Clooney and that Alison Krauss. She is so hot I want to just hug her. Down To The River To Pray just gave me chills it was so good. I wish I could give this album ten stars. It's just what the doctor ordered. Cheers me up, makes me feel so good inside. You don't hear music that is this positive very often. I just listen to that Good Times and my whole mood changes. I get happy all day! Love the Smokey River Boys and what they do for all of their fans. You're the greatest bluegrass group period.

Here's a wonderful review of this album by one of Nashville's premiere music critics. It's posted online at CD Universe

The Smokey River Boys are red hot and bluegrass to the bone.
This is perhaps the best in a 40 year history of recording on MCA Universal Records. The Smokey River Boys life and career which was profiled in the "O Brother" movie and garnered 11 Grammys in the 44th Annual Grammy awards, won all of the top 7 Grammy awards. These are the best of the best of the O Brother recordings
